On April 21, 2021, Welbilt announced that it had signed an agreement to be acquired by Middleby for approximately $4.3 billion. Pursuant to the merger agreement, Welbilt stockholders will receive 0.1240 shares of Middleby common stock for each share of Welbilt common stock owned. The deal is scheduled to close in late 2021.
